POLITICAL observations & opinions

* President Obama threatens to veto the Intelligence Funding bill due to Congressman Holt’s proposed new anthrax probe … UPDATE: the Business Week story has been revised to state that the President finds the anthrax study objectionable but not grounds for veto

here is an email I sent to the White House this morning …

  • I am a huge supporter of President Obama, but if he is truly going to oppose a review of the FBI’s failed anthrax investigation, we will part ways on this issue.
  • The FBI assertion that Dr. Bruce Ivins is the sole perpetrator of the anthrax attacks is bogus to its core. Continued coverup of this travesty raises far more questions than the truth might, and I personally think the truth is very bad.
  • Either the FBI has actually failed to solve the case and doesn’t know who the real anthrax perpetrators are, or it knows and is covering up the truth. If the latter, the reasons for the FBI covering up the truth are perhaps more important than the attacks themselves.
  • Congressman Holt’s probe is but the first step; it would be terribly wrong for President Obama to stand in the way of full disclosure of the FBI’s actions and conclusions.
  • It is the cover up of truth that raises doubts, not the truth itself. President Obama should not participate in a cover up of the Bush/Cheney/FBI failures in this area.
  • I was so infuriated by the FBI’s pathetic August 2008 announcement that I wrote a novel (CASE CLOSED) to explain why the FBI failed to solve the case. The recent release of documents has so far done nothing but provide even more evidence that the FBI is purposely and malevolently withholding the truth.
  • CASE CLOSED is of course fiction, but many readers, including a highly respected member of the U.S. Intelligence Community, think my premise is actually “quite plausible.”
  • There is a vibrant discussion of these issues taking place daily on my CASE CLOSED blog at … http://caseclosedbylewweinstein.wordpress.com/
  • Somebody on the White House staff should pay attention to these issues and advise the President before he makes a huge mistake.
